Chrysler Corp. chairman Lee Iacocca
kicked off a campaign yesterday to
convince Americans that the
Japanese do not have a monopoly on
quality automobiles.
"Forathe life of me, I don't know
* why there seems to be this national
inferiority complex," Iacocca told re-
porters on the first leg of a six-city
tour to showcase Chrysler products.
He spoke in a hotel balsoom before
a display of Chrysler autos ranging
from the minivan and Jeep to sports
and luxury cars.
"Every time I pick up the paper, I
seem to read another story that rein-
forces the idea that anything made
overseas, including Europe, is
somehow better than anything made
in America," he said. "We're not go-
ing to let that kind of crap go un-
challenged any more. We're going to
speak out."

talking about emotion and history,
and it's really hard to argue about
certain things."

May of 1988 for "racist and anti-
Semitic remarks," according to The
Chicago Tribune.

examines the

American impoverished

by Catherine Fugate
"American Pictures," a dramatic
study of poverty and racism in mod-
ern America, was shown last night
to a standing-room-only crowd in
Rackham Auditorium. The show,
presented in slides and narration, de-
tailed the travels of Jacob Holdt
through an impoverished America.
Holdt, who introduced the presen-
tation, said his curiosity for Ameri-
can life had been aroused after being
held at gunpoint upon arriving in the
United States from Denmark.
Throughout his travels, Holdt dis-
covered what he identified as "a side
of society that most of us do not
want to deal with" and that being the
underclass and the victims of racism.
Holdt combined the pictures he
had taken during his travels with nar-
ration and music to create a presenta-
tion that reflected the modern plight
of impoverished blacks throughout
the nation. However, he maintained
that the show "is not about Blacks.
It is a show about oppression."

The slide show was divided into
two parts, the first focusing upon
the poor of the rural South, and the
second dealing with the urban im-
poverished of the North.
Holdt said the show was an ex-
periment because it put the audience
through a form of oppression them-
selves so they could understand the

"American Pictures was described
as both powerful and disturbing,"
said Michael Ruyan, an organizer of
the presentation.
"I am surprised with the contin-
ued slave treatment in the South,"
said LSA junior Anne Avgerin.

sored by the Student Coalition for

plight of the lower class. "It is very
important to put ourselves in their
shoes," he said.
At the end of the show, Holdt
presented a list of emotional words
that the audience was asked to com-
pare with their own feelings.

"Tom lost in the statewide elec-

was a great gentleman. He invited
my wife Marilyn and I over to his

won a seat in the following election.
Roach has few regrets about his
time in office. But "nobody makes
every decision right," he said. He
